Join me for an afternoon of great jazz at Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts in Katonah, New York! This is an event we like to enjoy every year – sometimes we’ve attended during the day, sometimes the evening.
This year I invite members and guests to join me for the day. Let’s pack a picnic to enjoy, performances take place in the Venetian Theater and throughout the gardens, there will be a full schedule to choose from.
Members are invited to join me in the Caramoor Members Jazz Lounge as well!
